Powering up with no CP change!
My son caught a Smeargle yesterday, and powered it up today. Ah, to be a child again, who
- has the patience to use the snapshot feature, and
- doesn't mind spending dust on something that's not for PVP
But I digress.
His Smeargle was CP 10, level 1. He powered it up and... it was still CP 10.
The CP minimum! I knew that any value under 10 would be rounded up to 10. I just hadn't considered that you could be CP 10 at a level above 1!
His Smeargle is
5/0/2: clearly a god among men. Here's a table of CP from level 1 to 2.5:
|level||atk||def||hp||atk * def^0.5 * sta ^ 0.51||divided by 10||CP|
So... yeah. Two levels at the minimum. You go, Smeargle.
1 The numbers are actually slightly off, as the HP had been truncated by the time I did the calculation. In my previous posts I would add debug statements to my code but this time I couldn't be bothered.
